  • So I got my boots on,
    Got the right amount of leather
    And I'm doing me up with a black color liner
    And I'm working my strut but I know it don't matter
    All we need in this world is some love

    There's a thin line between the dark side and the light side baby tonight
    It's a struggle gotta rumble, tryin' to find it
    But if I had you, that would be the only thing I'd ever need
    Yeah if I had you, then money fame and fortune never could compete
    If I had you, life would be a party, it'd be ecstasy
    Yeah if I had you
    You y-y-y-y-y-you, y-y-y-y-y-you, y-y-y-y-you
    If I had you

    From New York to LA getting high rock and rolling
    Get a room trash it up 'till it's ten in the morning
    Girls in stripper heels, boys rolling in Maserati's
    What they need in this world is some love
    There's a thin line between the wild time and a flat-line baby tonight
    It's a struggle gotta rumble tryin' to find it

    But if I had you, that would be the only thing I'd ever need
    Yeah if I had you, then money fame and fortune never could compete
    If I had you, life would be a party, it'd be ecstasy
    Yeah if I had you
    You y-y-y-y-y-you, y-y-y-y-y-you, y-y-y-y-you
    If I had

    The flashing of the lights
    It might feel so good but I got you stuck on my mind, yeah
    The flashing and the stage it might get me high
    But it don't mean a thing tonight

    That would be the only thing I'd ever need
    Yeah if I had you, then money fame and fortune never could compete
    If I had you, life would be a party, it'd be ecstasy
    Yeah if I had you
    You y-y-y-y-y-you, y-y-y-y-y-you, y-y-y-y-you
    If I had you

    That would be the only thing I'd ever need
    Yeah if I had you, then money fame and fortune never could compete
    (never could compete with you)
    If I had you, life would be a party, it'd be ecstasy (it'd be ecstasy with you)
    Yeah if I had you
    You y-y-y-y-y-you, y-y-y-y-y-you, y-y-y-y-you
